Rich and fruit driven. Spicy oak, butterscotch and cashew are evident with lifted tropical fruits and mellow sweetness.
Changing our grape sourcing for Chardonnay from Beechworth to Alpine Valleys has been proved to be an excellent outcome for Wood Park. The vineyard chosen is located in the rolling hills of The Apline Valley Region and the consistent fruit quality, combined with attentive winemaking, has resulted in recent vintages being highly regarded.
Environmental scientist John Stokes planted his Wood Park vineyard in the foothills of the Victorian Alps in 1989. Driven by a passion for the environment John has reinvigorated Wood Park through a mix of re-forestation, erosion control and improved biodiversity. The vineyard is managed with a commitment to minimal chemical use. John’s wine making is a mix of traditional and modern techniques including plenty of hand plunging in open fermenters and use of wild yeasts.
